● General: If there's a problem happening in your personal life, you're in a good position to take care of it. This almost always starts with asking the other person how they're feeling. Next tell them that you care. Then try to be totally honest with yourself about how you feel and what you're contributing to the problem. Take a little time out. Keep repeating this process until you both feel better. Then hug each other and make up!
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: It's best if you avoid people in management as much as possible for the day, and try not to email or call them at all. You could find yourself rubbing an authority figure the wrong way, unable to help yourself.
● Finances: You don't want to be the first one to jump ship. On the other hand, no one else is taking any action. Do what's right for you and your bank account, even if that means taking the initiative and standing out in the crowd.
● Love: Paving the way for somebody else's romantic progress -- making a great introduction, giving some excellent advice and so forth -- earns you some Cupid credit now that'll come back before you know it.
● General: For you it isn't enough just to get the job done. No, you want to know that the job you're doing is having a positive impact on the world around you. Take some time to consider whether your effort is meeting this requirement for your happiness. If it isn't, then you might consider a career shift. What about something that involves teaching? Or community organizing? Or maybe your current job already has -- or could have -- these elements.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Sometimes no matter how hard you try, you just can't make progress. So if it feels as if you've been slamming your head against a wall, maybe what you need to do is step back and look at the situation from a different perspective. Odds are you'll see a door.
● Finances: If you go slowly, you'll find that bargain amid the bin of junk. But if you rush down the aisles you'll be paying good money for junk. That goes for all of your purchases today, from big ticket items to laundry detergent.
● Love: You're definitely there when they need you and they're on call for you, too. Whether it's someone to accompany you to a party or just a giggly phone conversation, friends are splendid now.
● General: Nobody would call you prodigal. But today you might want to focus even more than usual on conservation. Whether it's your energy, your gains, the environment or all three, today should be dedicated to taking stock and making sure everything is as stable as possible. Later on, you can harness this energy for some major moves -- but right now, just make sure there aren't any leaks in your bucket.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: The current odd state of affairs will clear up on its own in a day or two. Though you're usually pretty clear about what's going on around you, for now, you're deeply confused about some important element of work.
● Finances: Someone is waiting for an important communication from you, while you are waiting for word from them. It's just these kinds of misunderstandings that can make or break an important deal. Be the first one to pick up the phone.
● Love: Mixed signals, missed connections and all sorts of foibles are probable now. Prior to winking back at that certain someone across a crowded room, make sure their wink was directed at you!
● General: Sometimes the trick to having a good day is sleeping in. Today, do your best just to relax. Get up slowly. Stay in your pajamas. Make a big breakfast, but don't stress out about it. Yes, this is the life! And it's your life, just the way you want it. Now that's taking control.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: It seems as if everyone is using different protocols right now, so it's an odd day for communicating. Choose your words with care, but don't be too surprised if people misinterpret them anyway.
● Finances: If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck. And if it smells like a rat -- well, you can guess the rest. You are suspicious for good reason today, so keep a hand on your wallet.
● Love: Earth to you -- come in! You may be a bit of a space cadet at the moment and your thoughts are certainly worth being lost in. Just tune in enough to realize when someone else wants in on it too.
● General: Why not just get started on learning a new sport? Or a new language? Or how to cook, if you don't know how to already? The great thing about learning something new is you don't have to be in control -- you just have to sit back and listen to instructions. Sure, the active phase comes along pretty quickly, but in the beginning, you're just taking things in. And that's exactly the right space to be in.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: There's only so much you can figure out on your own -- the situation is too complex and full of subjective ideas. You need to get all the information you can before taking action. Don't hesitate to consult with others too.
● Finances: You've learned the easy way and you've learned the hard way, and you prefer the easy way. You get to enjoy life's lessons today because they don't come with a heavy emotional or financial cost attached to them.
● Love: There's some definite tension in the air. It may not be comfortable, but maybe that's a good thing. Everyone's emotional, everything's charged and getting all worked up might just lead to very interesting interactions.
● General: Have you been putting off any details lately? Today is a great day to go ahead and get through these little things. Give yourself plenty of time, make sure you have plenty of energy, boil a pot of water and add plenty of green tea, then get plenty organized and then get plenty detail oriented. By the end of the day, you'll have accomplished plenty!
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Subterfuge isn't your style, at least not at the moment, so play it straight. You can make some serious progress toward your career goals without trying too hard right now -- as long as you're honest about what you're doing.
● Finances: Not everyone is lucky enough to have found their calling. If you're stuck working for a paycheck, then you need to find your true purpose outside of work. If you can combine the two, you are golden.
● Love: Have your backup plan ready to go, as plan A may tend to fall through in the most unexpected ways. Oh and have a happy attitude ready to go, too -- it'll all be much more fun if you take it as it comes.
● General: Whether you've been working to establish a new neighborhood soup kitchen or you've been polishing up your own cooking skills to make more meals for your friends and family, you're in the finishing stages of a self-improvement project. So let people know you're ready for a test run and give them a date to come by and try whatever it is you're cooking up. Should be delicious!
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Someone is going to try to snap up a little bit of your authority in the near future, so be wary of new things or people. You won't miss that power for long because things are going to change for the better after that.
● Finances: Your only interest today is in other people. That's okay because all of your financial dealings are intimately entwined with those of others. Your day is a perfect combination of relationships and business.
● Love: It may feel like Cupid is testing you now -- your arrows are just missing their mark, your plans are going comically awry, you're standing there with your fly down and you don't know it. To pass the test, just laugh.
● General: You are nothing if not a terrific planner. But have you been neglecting your social circle in all of your work planning? Your people might be feeling a little left out of your well-planned, excellently executed world. Maybe you should plan a dinner or two with your nearest and dearest -- just check in and make sure everybody is feeling connected. It's important, you know.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: You have a lot of room to maneuver, and you should be facing several hot opportunities soon. Don't be ashamed of your ambitions -- in fact, right now you should be celebrating them.
● Finances: You blush easily today so don't try to pull one over on anyone. The slightest remark has the blood rushing to your head. But while you won't win any money at poker today, you just may win someone over. Keep being yourself.
● Love: You're bewitching, beguiling and not in the least bewildered, if the stars have their say. The right thing to say, the right move to make, the right place to be -- it's all occurring to you as if by magic.
● General: You're tough. Not just because you didn't cry once during your marathon training a few years back. Not because you get up at daybreak and do crunches until your tummy muscles absolutely ache. Although these things also make you tough, your toughness isn't limited to the physical. You can handle difficult emotions -- yours and other people's -- and this is the true test of toughness. Bravo!
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: If you're the bean counter, you need to curb spending ASAP. If the budget doesn't fall under your job description, then at least try to control your own use of resources and assets until the situation starts to change.
● Finances: You'd rather chop down a tree with an ax than prune your garden. You have that kind of energy to spare today. Put it to good use. You can take pleasure in whacking away at some of your larger, long-put-off chores.
● Love: Hey, space cadet! You might want to pull your head out of the clouds long enough to notice that cutie noticing you. Obliviousness won't do your love life any favors. At least look around!
● General: It never hurts to reexamine how your work helps (or fails to help) your community. After all, you're a very socially sensitive, community-oriented person, and if you are engaged in work that doesn't involve a role in the community, you should probably make some changes. On the other hand, maybe it's a question of perspective: There are really almost no jobs that don't, in some way, contribute to society as a whole.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Everyone should be happy with what they see right now, except any internal rivals you may have. After all, you're starting to see the results of the past cycle's work come in -- and so are your superiors.
● Finances: Once again, you're being pulled in two different directions today. Don't worry, it will all be over soon. Don't think you have to make just the right decisions today -- financial, personal or otherwise. There's nothing that can't be put off for another day.
● Love: Find an alternate means of communication when it comes to love-related stuff now. If you've been emailing a hottie for a bit, send 'em your number. If you're on the phone, send a text.
● General: You have a golden touch, but not in a bad way like King Midas. No, you've got a lighter golden touch where everything that passes through your fingers takes on a warm, healthy glow. It might sparkle a little too. What is this magic touch of yours? It could have something to do with the combined powers of belief and imagination. Today, take those powers and turn them into very real results.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Don't fight the current. If you struggle too much, you may find that someone is pushing back even harder than before. If you wait them out, then you'll be back on top. It's important to go with the flow for now.
● Finances: You'll learn an important life lesson today. Altruism has its own rewards, and they don't involve a tax break. That special feeling that comes from caring more about your community than about yourself is priceless. Enjoy.
● Love: If you've got a splurge of a date in mind, you might want to scale back, at least for now. Start lower-key and smaller-scale. With your creative powers, it's even more impressive than something fancy.
● General: How are you feeling about your social life? Is it too busy or too quiet? Too many people or not enough? Don't forget that one of the nice things about having a social circle is that you have different outlets for different elements of your personality (which is, as you know, multifaceted). Have you got this? Or do you need to meet some new people?
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Try to help come up with solutions to a current bottleneck, but don't be too disappointed if things don't all come together at once. After all, you're thinking about teamwork and can identify some key needs that aren't being met.
● Finances: The key to your cage is hidden from you. The cage? Why, bills, of course. You may be stuck for a while but you don't have to believe that the way out is a mystery. It's a straight shot, from hard work to freedom.
● Love: Zap! The stars are sending some serious electricity your way and the effects it has might well be rather shockingly terrific. Go on -- generate some hot current when it comes to your love life!
